The annual Christmas event includes live entertainment, kids carnival, arts and crafts, and food booths. The Parade starts at 3pm. Children can have their pictures taken for free with Santa at the Hawthorne Library from 4-5pm. Live entertainment will continue throughout the day from the main stage at city hall, ending with a tree lighting ceremony at dusk.
